Arts & Entertainment

Dinners, parades, contests and more begin Thursday.

Get ready for a day of Scottish fun, food, music and culture for the whole family as Franklin’s Taste of Scotland & Celtic Festival takes to the streets Saturday, June 14. This event celebrates Franklin’s deep Scottish heritage from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“North Carolina has more residents of Scottish heritage than any other state in the union,” said Doug Morton, event chairman. “In fact, North Carolina has more Scots than Scotland. This festival and supporting events is a sampler of everything Scottish. We have a great weekend planned sure to be enjoyed by every member of the family.”


The Franklin High School Music and Theatre Department’s performance of “Grease: School Version” at the Fine Arts Center last Friday and Saturday was well attended.

The timeless romance of Sandy and Danny played to favorite tunes like “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightning,” “We Go Together,” and “You’re the One That I Want.”

The production was supported by the Arts Council and the Macon County Academic Foundaton.


Classic rock band, 38 Special, will be in concert at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, June 13. Showtime is set for 7:30 p.m. and tickets start at $35.

Having performed together for more than three decades, and with many gold and platinum albums to their credit, 38 Special is a vocal powerhouse with a signature sound that brings intensity to their live shows and thrills audiences. Some of their hits include, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” and “Caught Up In You.”


Franklin’s Taste of Scotland weekend is rapidly approaching and tickets are available now for the Taste of Scotland Clan Dinner. The event will be held Thursday, June 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Tartan Hall at Franklin’s First Presbyterian Church.
